About Fender Guitars

Fender guitars are arguably the most recognisable electric guitars in history. Their classic designs from the 1950s - namely the Stratocaster and the Telecaster - have essentially defined what the world at large thinks of as the electric guitar. Literally countless rock legends have played Fender Strats and Teles, to give them their nicknames, both in the studio and on tour. They are versatile, practical, tough, beautiful and unmistakably cool.

These two core models have remained in uninterrupted production since day one and today there is a dizzying selection of models to choose from, coming from a number of different countries and belonging to several ranges.

Fender's more affordable models fall under the Squier name. These guitars are made in the Far East and, though they carry a different name on the headstock, are official Fender designs.

Fender's mid-range models are produced in Ensenada, Mexico and you'll find Mexican Stratocasters and Telecasters in series' such as the Player, Classic, Classic Player and Deluxe Series. Certain Artist Series guitars are made in mexico as well.

American Fenders are made in Corona, California. American Fenders are those found in the American Professional, American Elite, American Original collections as well as the more high end Artist Series models.

Fender also have a Custom Shop. This is a world-famous workshop staffed by the best artisans who make bespoke and small run Fender guitars that are truly the cream of the crop. You can buy team built models assembled by a number of artisans or a Master Built guitar made specifically by the same men and women who hand build guitars for clients including Eric Clapton and John Mayer.

Frequently Asked Questions about Fender Guitars

The quick answer is...everybody! Countless guitar legends since the 50s have used the Stratocaster to perform songs that have changed history. Here is a short, select list: Buddy Holly, Jimi Hendrix, Hank Marvin, Ritchie Blackmore, David Gilmour, Yngwie Malmsteen, Mark Knopfler, Nile Rogers, Dave Murray, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and John Mayer. This is just a few of them!
We think that Fender's Mexican range displays some great value for money guitars that are inspiring and reliable. They make a few models with a selection of single coil pickups and humbuckers that will definitely see you from the 50s to the 80s and beyond! To begin with, check out the following: the Fender Player Strat HSS, Fender Player Strat HSH and the Fender Dave Murray Strat, which has a very versatile trio of Seymour Duncan pickups and a Floyd Rose for a more 'rock' choice that still has what you need. American made Strats are not necessarily out of reach either. The American Special HSS Strat is incredible value for money and is a real workhorse. Overlook this at your peril! If you can stretch to it, the American Pro Strat HSS with the Shawbucker pickup in the bridge is a fantastic quality guitar that is well worth the extra spend. If you want to try any of these, or require more assistance, please do not hesitate to visit any of our stores or keep in touch online. We are here to help!
Fender make literally dozens and dozens of Stratocaster models with variations in hardware, pickups, woods, vintage provenance and country of manufacture. Some Strats are vintage themed and have period-specicif hardware and styling. Others are hot rodded for heavier music and can have humbucking pickups, locking tremolos and other upgrades. More still are a combination of both of these things, designed to take advantage of the Stratocaster's very versatile design. These guitars, Elite and Deluxe models, are for players who like to cover a large amount of sonic ground with one instrument. Now more than ever, there is a Fender Stratocaster model out there for everyone! Check out our entire range online.
A whammy bar is a slang term for a vibrato bar bridge. Fender called it a tremolo and this term has stuck ever since but technically it is a vibrato since, when operated, it changed the pitch of the strings due to physically letting off some of the tension in the tuned string, lowering the sound. Vibrato means movement in pitch whilst tremolo, if we are being pedantic, refers to a change in volume (like the 'tremolo' effect you find in stomp boxes and in some amplifiers). The Stratocaster tremolo is nowadays known as a 'vintage style tremolo' to differentiate it from vibrato bridges that have locking mechanisms like the Floyd Rose. These are operated in a similar manner but are fundamentally different in both design and maintenance. Almost all Stratocasters have a whammy bar.
